I’d start in the huddle but then I would get John to push me out after I say “You sure?” as this shows me having low status to the rest as I'm more concerned than the rest and so John would push me out as I’m getting too clingy. Then on my third line “what’ll they do to him?” Id look at the rest of gang over my shoulder with a sadistic look and a evil grin, to show my feelings that I like fear and that I am not a true girly girl but I’m a tom boy and I like fear and blood. Id then begins to walk over to the group and become more involved and maybe push Angela away from the guys to show that I have gained status.
“Never mind the pram” is when id look at Angela and keep my focus on her and maybe make her feel really tiny and unwanted as she is being pathetic about a stupid doll and stupid pram. Id then move in closer to the guys and deliver my line “your not frightened are you?” as if I’m going to make them feel not frightened and to help them get over their fears by offering myself as a cushion to them.
My next big moment as a character/performer would be when Peter arrives as all my focus and contact would go straight onto him, as if Angela and John’s relationship is at a high then I need to get my relationship with someone just as big and as flirtatious as Angela and John and who better than Johns rival Peter. This is how I’d perform Audrey in the first half of the play.
When I say “Did he?” to John my attention would go from Peter to John as Peter is becoming more scared in my eyes and John is coming more of a blood thirsty animal like me as he says “Slit their throats” as we all know Audrey likes blood and more boy stuff like being all dirty and muddy unlike Angela, so when John mentions violence I’d move away from Peter’s shoulder to John’s side to show that I want to be with the strongest of the pack and at this moment John is the strongest so I’d be with him and be interested in what he says.
Basically throughout this play I am fighting for status and the easiest way to do this is to hang with the guy who has the highest status at the time. This would show the audience that I am a desperate girl and a girl maybe with problems, as I need the attention 24/7 unlike most of the characters in the play.
At the end of the scene Peter and John leave us all alone so I’d be scared and upset so I’d perform this by clinging to someone else to have status and to show that I don’t always need someone there to hang onto that’s strong and has high status but I can also use someone who maybe isn’t as high up in the ranks of status like John and Peter but someone like Willie who I could use and use for comfort and stability.
Audrey throughout this play needs attention so to do this I would have a prop, and I’d choose a dirty hanky. I’d choose this because a hanky is a class piece of material which Audrey tries to be but its dirty so this gives the audience a clear view of a “Jekyll and Hyde” in Audrey, as she can be classy like a clean hanky but the hanky is dirty so she can be evil and heartless to people around her.
The way I’d use this prop is by a simple flick of the wrist to gain the boys attention and if that dint work I’d just drop it next to them and hope they’d pick it up and pass it to me so I could have a nice easy way to make eye contact with the boys which will then able me to gain status and attention by people I want.
Overall I’d play her as a cheeky mischievous fun loving girl who likes a hit of fun within that.
